T Stands for Tuesday

Sliding in late again.... as expected these days :-/ 
First off sharing a silly quote I read this morning....
"If I give you a straw, will you go suck the fun out of someone else's life?" 

I thought it was funny enough to share and could think of a few in particular I'd like to share it with.... no one here of course. 
It was a crazy whirlwind weekend with lots of travel and great visits with family.  I enjoyed myself so much I didn't take pictures except this one of my dad.
He is holding the youngest resident of his home..Autumn. She is one of the triplets that are temporarily living with my parents (and their mother of course) . Long story short they are friends of my 21 yr old  great-niece (who lives with my parents to help them out). They  needed emergency housing and my parents would never say no to someone in real need.  She has two adorable brothers, Ashton and Ryvan, who move faster than lightening and I never got a photo of them. They are 18 months old  and their Moma is just 21. I can't even imagine having to care for triplets at any age much less at 21. She is great with them though and takes everything in stride. 
They have been living with my parents for a month now and I didn't find out about it until  the Friday before Christmas.... they didn't want me to worry about them. LOL!  My parents seem to be handling it fine though and are in great spirits and health so maybe they needed to feel useful again and it was a good thing for them. 
Hopefully though the little family will find housing quickly because those babies need more room to grow and play in. 
I would need more than a cup or two of my favorite coffee to get through the day with those little jewels around. 
Santa was good to me this year and so was everyone in my family ♥♥♥♥
 So it was a grand Christmas but I'm glad it's over and I can rest now. Even Mini is all worn out.  She had a great time with the triplets for sure. 
Today's Random THOUGHTS....

....and don't forget to visit Elizabeth and the others ! 


  1. What a fabulous post, Carol. Had to laugh at the suck the life out of someone else quote. I feel like I've been a bit like that these past few days, because nothing I have done has been right.

    LOVE that photo of your dad and the one of three little ones. I also adore your new mug. It's truly adorable.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful Christmas post with us, as well as your new mug, for T this Tuesday.

  2. What a great photo of your dad with the toddler. What a doll and that carrot top hair - oh my. Your folks must be very special people to take in, not one but, three little tykes and their mom. Happy T Day, Carol :D

  3. Love that photo of your dad with the little red head. Great of your parents to take them in, my respect for that. Glad you had a good holiday even if it was a busy time. Enjoy the last days of 2016! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

    1. Love the quote with the straw, it must have been made for my family!

  4. Your parents are very special people to open their home for this family. Sounds like you had a lovely holiday.
    Hope that the New Year will be a good one for you all.
    Happy T Day.
    Yvonne xx

  5. Loved the straw quote. You dad looks so comfortable with the little one on his knee. Feeling useful and needed will pay out dividends. God bless your parents for helping out. Happy T Day and a creative New Year

  6. Your post really made me smile ... thank you!:-). Your parents are so kind and generous, and your dad looks really happy with the little cutie on his knee! Happy T Day and all the best for 2017, may it bring you joy, peace, love and light! Wishing you the very best today and all year long. J :-) x

  7. Triplets have to be a handful and for a young mother definitely hats off. Your parents are very kind to open their home. Very cute photo.
    Glad you had a nice Christmas. It seems to come and go so quickly anymore.
    Glad to be plugged in again.
    I have missed you Carol.
    Here's to a wonderful new year oxo

  8. Sorry for the belated visit but my washer billowed blasts of burning rubber smoke the other night so yesterday's project was to go buy a new one. :( I will say, your parents are amazing taking in people like that. I wish more people on the planet were like them.And your mug is great. I have a new doggie grandma mug to show you one of these T days. Glad your Christmas was wonderful and wishing you the happiest start to the new year too. Hugs-Erika

  9. Good Morning, Carol! Three!!! So kind of your parents to help out in such a big way. Glad you had a great Christmas. We are worn out too but slowly coming back to life. I am seeing some sunshine trying to peek through! LOVE the quote on the globe... if we would all just be kind it would be a different world!

  10. I'm with you this time...sliding in really late for me...
    Triplets! AGH! I bet everyone was worn out after that.
    Happy T day...a day late!

  12. You're parents are wonderful people! This must have certainly been a special Christmas. I can relate to your feeling glad it is now back to normal.
    Happy New Year!

    p.s. Sorry for being so very, very late to make my T-day round...

  13. What a wonderful thing for your parents to do! I'm sure that the little ones gave a lot of pleasure, one 18 month old baby can be quite a handful so can imagine what 3are like! Sorry to be late but at least I can wish you a Happy New Year! Hugs, Chrisx
